I am grateful to Carol on the Extreme Cards and Papercrafting blog:
for sharing the design for this gorgeous little hanging basket of sweets. I know I shouldn’t be encouraging the hubby to eat such things – I’m actually trying to encourage him to lose weight, but I couldn’t resist this, and everyone deserves spoiling sometimes.
Here are another couple of shots to show the sides in more detail.
I cut the shape and the strips from the .svg file I downloaded. The basket shape had slits cut in it, through which you weave the strips of coloured card. I also made an extra .svg file the same shape as the basket but without the slits, to be cut from red card to line the basket so that the backs of the woven pieces don’t show.
I’m going to hang it on his desk lamp so he sees it when he gets up. What’s the betting all those little sweets will be gone by lunch time?
